History now The Michigan Emergency Council Against War and Injustice is sponsoring a public viewing of the first half of PBS's civil rights documentary Eyes on the Prize. The group says the screening, for students aged 8-20 and their parents, is the first in a series of events to teach young people the history of the civil rights movement. Come for the open discussion, stay for the light lunch served afterward. The event starts at noon on Jan. 28 at the MECAWAI office, 5920 Second Ave., Detroit. Call 313-680-5508 to register.
